Energy Wk 2: Induction

Our kinetic energy group (Sukanya, Sid and I) tried out a few steps using the stepper motor. a.) We used the stepper motor, this is AC so we needed to add the diode rectifier to convert it to DC. We added a 470 µF capacitor, after the diode rectifier and before the LED in the […]

Energy Wk 1: Flash an LED with a Motor

Before realizing that we needed to power the led with either a magnet and coil or a dc motor, I looked into a couple of other different ways to power the led with kinetic energy. One of the more intriguing ideas I stumbled upon was the piezoelectric. I found this schematic online that I found […]
